Origins[edit]

Early life[edit]

Mesirow was born in Boston, Massachusetts. Her father is a member of the Blue Man Group in Berlin, and her mother, Casey Cameron, is one of the founders of new wave band Human Sexual Response. Following her parents' divorce, she relocated to the San Francisco Bay Area at age ten. She had some piano lessons as a child, and performed in musicals at school. Mesirow eventually studied German and literature at San Francisco State University, where she met Foreign Born singer Matt Popieluch, who helped draw out her songwriting abilities.[5]

According to Mesirow, the name "Glasser" was inspired by "a midnight vision of a figure hovering over water".[6]

Style[edit]

Glasser has been compared to Joni Mitchell, Björk and Cocteau Twins.[7]
